    New NHL season will soon be upon us so time for a new thread.

    NHL welcomes back Winnipeg, Ice Hockey world hopes no-one else dies.

    On a good news front, the AIHL will finally be getting some TV coverage with the Melbourne Ice streamed games from last season being screened over the summer on C31 in Melbourne on Saturday afternoons at 2pm.

    Now if we could get some decent NHL TV coverage in Australia...

    Hockey thread is usually just me, Tex, JC & Whacker anyway.

    On the subject where has Whacker been of late anyway?

    They should run riot this season


    Hoping the Devils can not spend the first half of the season playing worse than Port. Maybe Lou should shoot s00z and email for some gameplan advice?

    Also tipping the Blues to be the big climbers this season.

    Jets for the spoon

    May not be far off, the people in Winnipeg are just happy to have a team back in town

    Roosters with the new logo and jerseys sitting 5th in the DEL. See how long it lasts though, we tend to be fail at making playoffs. Consider being in the league an achievement.

    So they are like the Maple Leafs of the DEL?

    Na, more like Fremantle. Not a bad effort though, city of about 100,000 people with a team in one of the top hockey leagues in Europe

    Got Gamecentre Live yesterday. Going to be win watching every game this season. Watched the Devils v Flyers this morning. Flyers very sloppy, Devils pressed hard on the forecheck. All three goalies played well. Jagr should kill it on the PP this year. Reckon he will get 50 easy and will get 60ish.

    No bananas on the ice.

    There is a reason I got in now. Though I think we should make them this year. Should.

    Leafs played some solid D in the last period today hey Tex?
  20. Tex21

    Tex21 Change this bitch Umpire

    Very nearly went back to 'old' (I hope its old anyway) Leafs and fucked it all up. Take the win though. Phil Kessel is a dead set gun though. Nearly forgive Burke for trading away our picks there

    pickman The voice of reason Umpire

    Winnipeg officially mark their return to NHL with a 5-1 loss to the Canadiens.

    Looks like it will be a tough year but if the people can keep the enthusiasm like we saw this morning then the Jets Mk.II should be a success :thumbsu:
  22. _JC_

    _JC_ Do you take plastic?

    Jets will be last in the East IMO.

    Also Devils first win today, w00t
  23. _JC_

    Good win today. Also lolz Bolts losing 5-1 to the Isles.

    Phil Kessel wins us a game off his own stick again. Can play a little bit.

    Picko u mad bro. Avs 4 from 4 on a 5 game road trip. Looking for playoffs this year with a talented young list. Hope we dont fade like shit like we did last year

    Am I mad? Yes, sir, the Habs have had a hetero start to the season :thumbsd:

    Avs have plenty of quality young talent, they'll cause plenty of teams plenty of hassles this year :thumbsu:

    On the AIHL front, the Perth Thunder have been admitted to the league for 2012 which will expand the competition to nine teams for the time being.

    _JC_ Do you take plastic?

    Will pretty much depend on Varlamov stying healthy. I have him in fantasy so i hope he does, but he's a massive risk.

    When he's good he's very good. Its just that his bad games are fucking terrible.

    Another day another shootout win for the Devils. Fuck Parise and Kovy can do penalties. Also Larsson looks awesome would fuck*. Hedberg filling in ably for Marty.

    *Strong hetero.

    Livid. THough it was good to see us at least have the ticker to get the GTG. 2 years ago, we would have folded in the 3rd and lost by 3 goals.

    Maybe if you were playing someone that finished higher than 29th last year that would of happend
  33. Tex21

    We don't discriminate Whack. Since the lockout we've capitulated against everybody. Finally some signs of hope late last year, start of this year though
  34. _JC_

    Fuck Joe Pavelski. Scored the GTG with about 30s to go. Sharks win in the SO. Fucking ghey
  35. Tex21

    Tex21 Change this bitch Umpire

    At least you didn't go down 6-2. Albeit to Boston, but still. Reimer takes a game off, we decide to hang Monster out to dry from all reports.

    I'd just like to win a game atm :eek:
  37. Tex21

    Tex21 Change this bitch Umpire

    pickman-if you're watching the game, any idea why we've pulled Reimer out at the intermission? Injury?*

    Can't help with this, Gamecentre Live has shat itself for PC users like myself and the PS3 app isn't available on the Aus PSN Store and they don't have a Nokia app :mad:

    The way the Canadiens have been playing lately you probably pulled Riemers for the lulz
  41. Tex21

    We are still never in a position to do anything for the lulz - unless its at our own expense.

    Lol at flyers getting done 9-8 by the Jets
  44. Tex21

    Tex21 Change this bitch Umpire

    Saw the score after the 2nd, when it was 6-4 and lol'd then. THen saw the 9-8 and lol'd again. Then remembered we got rolled by the flyers :(

    lol.

    Did enjoy the Marchant v Subban war as well today.

    Big two days for the Habs, 6pts out of 6 available, two outright losses and you could've stuck a fork in the Habs season already
  48. _JC_

    _JC_ Do you take plastic?

    When did the Leafs stop being shit. 5-3 at 2nd break against the Devils.

    Larsson finally gets a point. Two fights so far as well.
  49. Tex21

    Tex21 Change this bitch Umpire

    Its still early in the year JC. Our shitness is still in front of us. Marty having a cunt of day on comeback, and Monster only marginally better.

    Joffrey!!!!!!!!!

    Columbus outshooting Leafs 25-14 early in the third.
